Spinto Band and Hoots & Hellmouth in Arden

The wooded grove behind Arden's Gild Hall is the perfect place to spend a hot summer afternoon with good friends and great music.
Delaware's own Spinto Band deconstructs the elements of pop and rock and reassembles them in energetic, tuneful, off balance arrangements that at times reminds me of early Talking Heads. These guys can play a mile a minute and still turn on a dime.
Hoots & Hellmouth from nearby Chester County showed no energy shortage with raucous songs steeped in country and gospel traditions.
The Arden Concert Gild produces great music year-round, which may be why WXPN and the Grand Opera House have decided to partner with them in the last year. For the most exciting, eclectic concert series in the Wilmington area, pay close attention to the Gild's offerings for the coming season.
